Their startup survived a tsunami and Sri Lanka’s fledgling internet. Now it’s booming


techinasia.comIt was in the early 2000s when a group of five young, ambitious high school graduates from Sri Lanka realized their burning desire to strike out on their own. They were enthusiastic about entrepreneurship and yearned to make it big – building a company synonymous with quality and excellence.

Despite barely being out of their teens, the five friends proceeded to register and launch their company, Vesess. They called themselves “The 5,” and their company logo was five fingers and a palm. Initially they dabbled in several fields, trying to test the waters and see what would stick. One of their early products was a Flash-based Valentine’s card, which they hoped would appeal to the younger generation of Sri Lankans.
